basically -- basically, they are tony blair to george w. bush's margaret thatcher. they have said, we have to keep 98% of the bush tax cuts in place for the betterment of the economy. >> it's so much bigger than that. >> they have won. >> republicans won. >> we have won. tax breaks. >> so to give a couple of percentage points to 2% of people. >> it could be so much bigger because the conversation has been shifted to how do we reduce our deficit. >> brian sullivan, thank you so much. greatly appreciate your insights. thanks for being with us on "way too early." you can catch brian on cnbc's "street signs" at 2:00 p.m. he is the hardest working man in show business, or at least on the other side of the river. >>> coming up this morning, we've got republican senator tom coburn. can't wait to talk to tom. also, tom cole will be here on set. that's great. we're going to ask him what he was thinking last week. i'm joking. congressman. also, democratic senator claire mccaskill. can you believe this? and congressman chris van hollen. also, we're going to bring in former national security adviser d

't matter. you know, look at george w. bush. talk about a walking talking joke. the second time that he ran -- were you kidding me? all he had to do was repeat what he said and people were screaming. neil: and he gotreelected. >> and he got reelect i will say that that is right. i do think it was overly disproportionate and part of my thinking is that evything that mitt romney would do or say became a joke. even stuff that had to stand out as being unusual. you hear what they have to say, certain guys, and it's easy to get a joke out ofthem. you know, obama, from the time he was running for president the first time -- you don't want to come off as picking on that guy's the one i see, everyone holds their tongue because they don't want to look like -- >> yes, you don't want to look as racially prejudicial. his mother a muslim to live in the white house, that's a great show. but when it comes to the serious things, i think comedians are holding back. mitt romney, he makes statements about 47% of the american people without knowing that somebody is reporting it -- you know what i'm saying?

, which was signed in 1990 by president george h. w. bush and then it continued on with president bush and clinton and everyone else thereafter, when they did that, now i understand they are just not the party that any of us would want to be involved with. that's all i have to say. host: the video we just showed was shot by a c-span producer with his iphone. it was the former senator in a wheelchair making his way into the chamber yesterday for that vote. here's the new york times with that story. and a screen grab. seven he sat in support of the tree. -- he sat in support of the treaty. he's 89 and is a republican at who was the majority leader. his wife elizabeth dole and he left the port and republicans voted down the street. he was recently released from walter reed military center. now an independent caller from ohio, lee. caller: good morning. i am calling about something i have not heard about. people willing to take the $15 or $20 extra they're getting from the to% tax break, it is coming off their pension when they retire. social security is based on what you contribute. host:
, remember president george w. bush was leading on immigration, so was senator john mccain, both on immigration and on climate change. the fact that the republican party has gotten away from sensible positions on both those issues shows how far down the rabbit hole the republican party has fallen. >> okay. well, politico reports governor brewer has met with casino magnate sheldon adelson amid talks she may run for president, yes, in 2016. stop laughing. he was such a big help to mitt romney, i suppose jan brewer might be the right logical choice next. after all, he's only spent, what was it? $150 million on this election? john? >> go ahead, john. >> go ahead, ana marie. i'm dumbfounded by the fact -- >> you're speechless? >> i'm speechless. >> why? >> jan brewer, presidential timber. are you out of your mind? there's no way. i mean -- >> i say jan brewer 2016. ana marie cox and jonathan capehart. thank you so much. >>> next, is this the week the president picks susan rice as his next secretary of state or has he preferred someone else? stay with us.

. no one thinks that. >> i never said this was about home schooling. >> george w. bush signed -- >> i want to give you a chance, john. effectively explain how the u.n. would intervene in the household or schooling matters affecting american citizens. how would they functionally do it? interfere. >> if the u.s. signs a treaty, they're responsible for living up to that treaty and can enforce that treaty. what you're basically saying is why don't we sign the treaty and we'll just ignore it and hope other countries live up to it. >> he doesn't have an answer, chris. >> that's the answer. let me ask you this, why don't we do this -- >> i want to do him a favor. i want to endorse rick santorum for the republican nomination in 2016. >> i think you've been very clever there, john, to say some people think. do you think it? >> i think -- >> do you fear u.n. hopes coming into our country? >> it makes me very nervous when we take countries that have no beliefs in civil liberties, countries who are terrible on human rights and we say we're going to put you in charge of decisions -- >> that's not what

support it? because george h.w. bush started this process and president george w. bush signed the treaty to participate in it. and because in the end, this treaty and our participation in it -- and this is the most important -- can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. because to join it is to keep faith with the men and women who have suffered grievous disability in defense of our nation, and we owe them nothing less. this treaty is not about changing america. it's about america changing the world. but a vote here is a test of this institution. this vote is a test of whether the senate, which passed the civil rights act and the voting rights act and the americans with disabilities act, is still capable of voting to change things, let alone send a message that could change the world. i ask colleagues to do for the world what they've done for america -- walk down the aisle here and for millions everywhere who cannot walk make a stateme statement. raise your voice and vote for millions who are voiceless in their own lands. stand up for those who cannot stand up for them
to be this way. 1992 when bill clinton unseated george h.w. bush, these same counties, won 60% with the whole foods market. 40% with cracker barrel. so that was a 20-point gap. it's a 48-point gap now. >> there are some older votes, maybe the old fdr coalition that have shifted to the republican party. the democratic coalition of younger voters, hispanics, african-american, is just growing in size. >> if you had to pick a couple of counties that would epitomize that shift, you look at ohio and the white working class counties along the ohio river, coal country, belmont county, ohio, gave john kerry 52% of the vote in 2004. obama only won 44.7% this time around. if you had to look at a county that captures where democrats are doing better and better, it's probably in your home state, chuck, osceola, florida. outside of orlando, kissimmee, st. cloud, huge growing puerto rican population. consider that john kerry only won 47% of the vote there in 2004. guess where obama was this year? 61.7%. >> i challenge anybody to find another county with that dramatic of an uptick, that size of a county. spe
. they have characterized it as a bad thing. it has a lot of a populist opposition to it. george w. bush signed in a phase-out of the estate tax. the top rate stays at 55%. the exemption level started rising from $1 million and going up. it was repealed completely in 2010 for one year. then it sprang back to life as part of the extension of the bush tax cuts that president obama signed into law. you have a debate -- very few members dispute that it needs to be continued. the debate is over whether you continue it at the current level. there is an exemption level, $10 million for a couple. or at the white house would prefer a 45% rate. that is the debate right now. there's a split among democrats. the white house wants a less generous estate tax. red-leaning states like max baucus. host: that was the headline recently in "the wall street journal," showing the senators. at its highest, what was the estate tax? how many people did the estate tax affect? guest: we are talking tens of thousands. right now it affects 3000 estates. the exemption level is set high historical novel. it has come d

of the things -- i mean come you covered george w. bush. i wrote for books on him. there was a lot of mystery about what bush felt -- yes, a gut player. as he said, his job was to put some calcium in the spine. but i think obama is a little bit more of an uncertain figure and quite frankly when he writes his own autobiography and his time as president and there is more excavation of all of this, we're going to discover that he's working it out as he plays the game. somebody with a little more experience under their belt might not be doing. >> some other comments you he made about president obama including but she just said executive subtext or little disappointed or underwhelmed. >> i wouldn't say disappointed. it goes to the question of what is our job in the news media. our job is to be, "politico" specializes in a 242nd, not in a hostile negative way, but you are asking and raising questions and that's the job. look, what's happened in the last many decades in the presidency, increasing concentration of power. there's the catastrophe in japan in the united states immediate need they want t

information on the health of former president george h.w. bush. he's rapidly improving in a houston hospital. the 88-year-old was admitted for bronchitis the kay after thanksgiving. doctors say his condition was never serious, but wanted to prevent it from becoming pneumonia. he could be released as early as this weekend. >>> our nation's world war ii veterans getting special recognition at the wisconsin premiere fort documentary "honor flight." hundreds showed up to hear their war stories and watch as the veterans set out on a journey to the world war ii memorial in washington d.c. >> i had to bring out my handkerchief three times of the whenever i see that world war ii memorial, the one with the flag raising, i got to cry. >> gretchen: wow. the documentary had its world premiere over the summer. it will now have encore showings december 5 through 7. >>> remember when we had on that woman from your town and she wrote the book for kids on veteran? >> brian: the teacher. >> gretchen: you know what my kids say what book t
with these george w. bush tax cuts over the past eight years, where are the jobs? if tax cuts create jobs, where are they at? that is one point. when speaker john boehner talks about obamacare costing so much, and government madison -- socialized medicine, that is what the congress gets. they are socialized medicine. if it is good for the congress and senate, but not the american people? ont: let's move on to gina the line for republicans. the last caller said he was to hear about the bush tax cuts and the jobs. what happened? caller: i do not know where the jobs are, but i can tell you if the tax cuts expire, my husband and i make under $100,000 a year in we will be hit with $4,000 in more taxes a year. what i wanted to say was, i agree with the last two previous callers. obama does not want to compromise. here is a fact for you. if he really wanted to compromise and he really wanted more taxes from the rich, he would talk about cutting out the loopholes. anybody who knows anything about taxes understands that is how the top rich get by with paying no taxes. he is trying to play both sides of t
trust anything democrats agreed to when we have had a history going back to george h. w. bush where he promised to raise taxes, and the democrats were going to lower -- cut spending $2 for every dollar that he raised? what happened, he had said, read my lips, no new taxes. would he agree to do this, the democrats piled on. why in the world should they trust anything the democrats promise as far as spending cuts are concerned. guest: let's go back to the earlier question, do they live up to the deficit-reduction law's the past. it is true they sometimes pass spending cuts and then reverse them. -- laws they have passed. it is true they sometimes pass spending cuts and then reverse them. it kind of works on both sides, but i suppose why should republicans trust democrats? democrats also did not know if they should trust republicans. that is why we're in a little bit of a gridlock here. host: we began our conversation with sam goldfarb of cq roll call by talking about a so- called tax extenders. a quick definition? guest: temporary tax breaks usually directed to the small type of business
